I thought it would never happen, but today the trailer for the newest Netflix animated series has made one of my hopes come true. Voltron: Legendary Defender is the reboot of the classic Voltron: Defender of the Universe, and animated predecessor of the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. This show originally aired in 1984-1985, spanning three seasons, and featured a crew of five misfits and five awesome robot lion ships that could join together to form the giant robot, Voltron. So, cool.
Now, Dreamworks Animation and Netflix have teamed up to breathe new life into this amazing franchise and bring Voltron to a new generation. Check out the trailer.

Featuring a cast of voice actors including Tyler Labine from Reaper, Monsters University, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Steven Yuen, better known as Glenn from The Walking Dead, this show has cool animation, great sound, and some real talent behind it to make this the next big thing to watch this coming season. Watch for episodes available June 10th, 2016.
